Elliott's Own Animation


I am so proud of this animation made in the true spirit of on line collaboration. Elliott recently attended a Waimea South ICT Cluster Lead Kids Day where he, Nicole and Zach learnt how to make animations using Quicktime Pro.

This was all fine and dandy but Elliott doesn't have Quicktime Pro on his computer at home and the school holidays have started. So using his ICT and collaboration skills he has learnt over the last 18 months of being in Moturoa he took 140 or so photos for his animation and emailed them to me in three batches at a fair resolution and I used Quicktime Pro to put them together for him after he had emailed me with instructions of what to do. I emailed him back with two finished videos so he could choose which of the settings he preferred- 2 frames per second or 6. He preferred 6 frames per second. Then I added a copyright free music track and asked his permission to publish it to TeacherTube and here we are.

This could just as easily been done with any collaboration anywhere in the world with fast internet access. I will look forward to more of this sort of thing throughout the term when I am not in class.

The video is great, but the story of how Elliott used IT problem solving to get it produced with Miss K's help is the best part of the story - true collaboration.
